The focal point of the group - described by critics as "one of the best Polish string quartets today" - is Polish music, especially the lesser-known and more recent, and for its interpretations the artists have been repeatedly awarded and appreciated. In Poznań, they will perform compositions by F. Mendelssohn, A. Tansman and Sh. Laks.

Bastarda Trio | 21.05. 8:00 pm CEST

This unique and acclaimed clarinet-bouble-bass trio makes its return to Poznan with its latest project. This time, the ensemble will present works by the greatest Polish film music composers of the 20th century. Familiar and much-loved themes will be served in a fresh new way, filtered through the unique timbre and specificity of the ensemble's approach to sonic matter. 

Szymon Komasa & Marcin Kozieł | 22.05. 8:00 pm CEST

The middle point of the program of the Sleeplessness Festival will be a lyrical evening in the company of award-winning, exquisite artists: opera singer Szymon Komasa and pianist Marcin Koziel. Their performance will include songs by Jerzy Wasowski, Władysław Szpilman, Jan Gall and Zygmunt Krauze.

Adam Kośmieja | 23.05. 8 pm CEST

One of Poland's most exploratory and innovative pianists, dubbed a musical chameleon, performs both a classical repertoire and broadly defined new music taking full advantage of multimedia. The artist will present music from his latest album "Infinity," which is a fresh, original reading of the popular work "Canto Ostinato" by Simeon ten Holt. 

Jakub Jakowicz & Łukasz Chrzęszczyk | 24.05. 8 pm CEST

The concluding concert, performed by the virtuoso violin and piano duo, will be extremely diverse and colorful. We will hear works from their "Departures" CD, Polish music that was composed between the interwar period and the 1990s. (Malawski, Bacewicz, Górecki, Szymanowski/Kochanski), further complemented by the "Post Scriptum" Sonata by Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov.
